Custard Pie

I needed a recipe for a dish to serve to my MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) friends at our last meeting. It was about an hour before bedtime when I remembered I had to bring a snack. I started flying through my cookbooks when my 12 year old son walked up with a cookbook that he and his friends had made in his 6th grade HomeEc class the year before. "Can I make a dish out of my cookbook?", he asked. I could use some time off of my feet so I answered with, "Sure, knock yourself out!" 1 hour later, my aspiring chef had baked one of the most tasty pies I have ever eaten. Thanks Cameron (and his friend Matthew Cunningham for adding this recipe to their book)!!
